Solar panels and wind turbines coupled with energy storage offer a better hope for tackling climate change than trying to capture carbon from fossil fuel power stations, according to new research published by Nature Energy.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced up to $28.1 million in funding aimed at advancing wind energy nationwide across the land-based, offshore, and distributed wind sectors.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) selected nine projects totaling $6.2 million that will reduce environmental compliance costs and environmental impacts of land-based and offshore wind energy.
A new analysis of state taxation policies regarding wind energy in the West shows New Mexico is the lowest-cost state for wind farm development, followed by Montana, Colorado and Wyoming. The study, released by the University of Wyoming’s Center for Energy Economics and Public Policy, takes into account wind resource estimates, construction and labor costs, and tax policies.
With energy demands rising, researchers at Penn State Behrend and the University of Tabriz, Iran, have completed an algorithm — or approach — to design more efficient wind farms, helping to generate more revenue for builders and more renewable energy for their customers.
The 2018 Virginia Energy Plan, which provides a strategic vision for the Commonwealth’s energy policy over the next 10 years, focuses on modernizing the electric grid and promoting innovative technologies, including solar and wind energy.
At an average of around 2 cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh), prices offered by newly built wind projects in the United States are being driven lower by technology advancements and cost reductions.
Dominion Energy is committing to having 3,000 megawatts of new solar and wind — enough to power 750,000 homes — under development or in operation by the beginning of 2022.
Over the past decade, Texas has increased its solar power production by 38,510 percent and its wind power production by 410 percent, according to a new report by Environment Texas Research & Policy Center.
